I have been working at Madison Square Garden full-time

Pros

Although progress is slow, as with any large company, management shows a strong desire to constantly improve the company. They also have excellent benefits.

Cons

Entry level salaries can be low, but they are competitive when coming in with experience. Poor education assistance program if you are looking to further your degree.

    I worked at Madison Square Garden part-time

    Pros

    Shared gratuity meant a guaranteed decent payday without additional tips. Very flexible scheduling. Got to work at some really awesome concerts and also Knicks/Rangers games. Fun environment when the right guests are present.

    Cons

    Very caddie old timer staff. Nasty, angry old coworkers that won't accept change. Not friendly to new employees. No break once night begins, stuck eating dinner at 11 p.m. after shift. Last minute shift cuts despite the commute faced by employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to discipline employees that have been working there since before you were born....

    I have been working at Madison Square Garden

    Pros

    You get to see free concerts or shows only if you work that particular show and It's a very beautiful environment to work.

    Cons

    You only work if there's a show. Most times, you'll work only 4 shows in one month or none at all for several months and every now and then you'll get a month when there's a show everyday. You will work on average of about 3-4 hours for every show you do work. Also contrary to popular belief, well at least for this theater, there are no benefits. This position is the face of the company and has the most interaction with the public, however you will not get comp or discounted tickets. Merchandise, Security, Bartenders, and Management have these perks. I don't know why Ushers are not included. The Ushers are underpaid compared to all other departments within the company and COMPARED to similar positions at other theaters.
